"A full-wave solution has been obtained for radio wave propagation in the presence of an elevated tropospheric layer. This analysis was performed as part of the CNI (Communication, Navigation, Identification) experimental program. The tropospheric layer is modeled as a trilinear refractive index profile with a sufficient lapse rate so as to result in an elevated duct. The analytical solutions give the received signal level for air-to-air propagation paths at UHF, the corresponding signal...

Extensive numerical results are presented for the reflection coefficient of a horizontally stratified ionized medium. The profiles of electron density and the collision frequencies are both taken to be exponential functions.

Propagation measurements at 9.4 and 9.2 Gc/s were made over a 47 km, line-of-sight, over-water path at Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas.The purpose was to study the signal amplitude and phase variations at the two frequencies, and in particular, the variat Topics: Shortwave radio--Transmitters and transmission., Tropospheric radio wave propagation.
Ionospheric Plasma Disturbances And Effects On Radio Waves by Lee, Min-Chang. "Ionospheric plasma heating experiments were conducted at Arecibo to investigate generation of ionospheric plasma bubbles, sheet-like ionospheric irregularities, Langmuir waves, upper hybrid waves, and ion Bernstein waves. This research has shed light on physics and effects of HF waves on naturally occurring ionospheric plasma turbulence." Digitized by The Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC).
